The Ekiti State Government has stated that the status quo in Araromi-Obo regarding the traditional dispute between the Elemobo and Owa Olobo families should be maintained.

Chief Monisade Afuye, Deputy Governor of Ekiti, stated this at a meeting between the two families, traditional Chiefs, and some concerned Ado Ekiti residents.

Chief Afuye, who warned that the government would not tolerate anyone fomenting trouble in the town, said all natives of the town should abide by the court ruling that stated who should be entitled to the position of traditional ruler in the town, pending the Appeal Court ruling.

“Our position as a government is to ensure peace, and we will do everything possible to ensure orderliness across the towns in Ekiti,” said the Deputy Governor of Ekiti State.

“This administration has no personal interest in anyone who becomes the Regent or Oba in Araromi-Obo Ekiti, but as an obedient government, we are trying to maintain law and order to protect the people from causing crisis, and we would not impose anyone,” Afuye said.

“I am a princess, and nowhere in Yorubaland does a Kingmaker become an Oba, so please and please, I beg you, no one should fight over this matter, and anyone caught fomenting trouble over this matter again will be dealt with.”

She explained that the current administration of Governor Biodun Oyebanji was poised to ensure peace and tranquillity in the State’s towns and villages, and that the government would not interfere in issues that could cause a crisis.

Chief Afuye stated that the government decision to install a Regent in Araromi-Obo was legal and warned the ruling houses, traditional Chiefs, and residents of the town against actions that could jeopardize the decision.

While praising the Ekiti state government for its efforts to maintain peace, the Regent, Araromi-Obo Ekiti, Princess Adenike Ogundahunsi, promised the town’s people’s cooperation in adhering to the government’s decision.
